Move over mustard: London Fashion Week Heralds a Yellow Dawn

Mustard might be the colour of the season right now but, come spring, it will be making way for its brighter, sunnier cousin – yellow.  Last week, I wrote about orange being a key colour trend from New York Fashion Week.  Well if the catwalk shows at this week’s London Fashion Week are anything to go by yellow is also going to be huge for Spring Summer 2012.  Expect to be slipping into citrus brights next season to give your wardrobe the sunniest of palettes.

Asish brightened up the catwalk with bold sunflower prints on a striped, sequined background  – I just love this edgy way to do summer.   London Fashion Week stalwart Nicole Fahri showed off a relaxed and sporty collection which relied heavily on combinations of daffodil yellow and white.   Crisp white and sunny yellow is such a fresh and summery colour combination and very easy to integrate into your wardrobe when spring rolls around.  Jonathan Aston’s 40 Denier Opaque Tights in daffodil are also just the right shade of yellow tights to combine with paler shades and white for that sporty look.

Emilio de la Morena mixed acid yellow with sheer knits and chiffons in pale lilac.  It’s a colour combination that has been growing on me the more I think about it and urging me to try combining Jonathan Aston’s 15 denier sheer coloured tights in which give just the right shade of lilac tights to wear with a bright yellow dress or skirt.  Jonathan Saunders has given us extra colour inspiration with his combinations of yellow and pale blue and very pale pink.

London Fashion Week darling Christopher Kane also got in on the act with his iridescent shift dresses with a yellow gold and silver floral print while fashionista’s favourite Louise Gray made sure her incredible prints were highlighted with lashings of bright yellow.

Do experiment with colour combinations using the soft pastel colours of Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights or give your look a sporty dash with white and yellow highlights. Mustard will have its time again no doubt, but Spring Summer 2012 looks set to be all about its cheery cousin yellow.  Can’t wait!
